Garden by Day/ Craft by Night

Special Invite:
Two of my CTMH pals, Joyce and Betty, are planning a 
Mother's Day Out 
next Saturday, May 11th and the project looks wonderful.  
If you live within driving distance of Lansdale PA, you might want to check out the workshop details and view the photos of the beautiful cards, tag and card holder they will be making.  What a beautiful gift for Mother's Day or a birthday!  Joyce has everything posted on her blog here.  

Got lots of 'fresh' air today in my gardens.  Well, there was also a bit of dust, pollen, fertilizer and mulch mixed in with the fresh air.  
Not much time left for crafting, but enough to make this card:

Some Mom's might enjoy a "tee" time for Mother's Day!

I used a digi image by Sandi Huggett, a fellow Outlaw, some die cuts using the Cricut Artiste cartridge from CTMH, 2 of my favorite embossing folders, and 2 of my special handmade crochet flowers which I only use for important cards.

Mother's Day is a popular theme this week among the challenges, so I have quite a list of blogs where I'll be entering this card.  Here goes:
